Left lower leg and the top red panel, it looks like it's been drybrushed a tad to heavy

Excellent, the banner does stand out, it appears to have little or no weathering compared to the rest of the model, but that is a t8ny quibble the model is tops mate

It does look really well done. I nice colour choice as well.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I'm curious; How long did it take you to paint it? It looks great and it's a huge model, so I would be intrigued to hear how much time one would have to set aside.

it took me roughly 4 full days..so over 30 + hours..alot of time is wasted waiting for washes and decals though..
what you cant see is all the piping in the body has also been painted..\

the body itself is rather simple.,..it mainly dry brushing and washes..it slows done once i start the gold as i do it in 3 stages..

it really is a great kit.enjoyable to build fun to paint..im looking forward to painting another 1

You have received a good number of comments in such a short time, even if you remove your own comments. A lot of people won't comment if they have nothing to add. I would encourage you to post more but its obviously totally up to you.

And you painted this in super fast time. It took me a couple of weeks to paint a little storm talon.
